My 20 months old boy has a lot of symptoms associated with CF:
- loose stools with a pungent smell since I stopped breastfeeding him last June when he was 13 months old. Until then hist stools were always fine but since then they have NEVER been normal.
- he is often congested, he had sinusitis this summer
- he was just diagnosed with pancreas problems and started taking pancreas enzymes
- and he also has hypotonia that delayed his motor skills, he finally started to walk at 19 months old
He had a first sweat test 2 months ago that was negative, not even borderline.
Now the gastroenterologist wants him to take an other sweat test and to also have a blood test to check for CF mutations.
Can he have CF with a negative sweat test??
